This Valentine's Day, our hearts belong to a certain cowboy made famous by this year's hottest — and most tear-jerking — Super Bowl ad: Budweiser's Clydesdale "Landslide" commercial (cue bawling). The cowboy in question turns out to be dimpled Texan Don Jeanes, who pretty much wrangled us into a pile of goo with his smooth country drawl and "ma'am"s when we spoke with him this week. We asked our readers what they'd like to find out about this crush-worthy cowboy, and he answered all their burning questions — including his relationship status! Check out the interview now, and rewatch the ad below!
POPSUGAR: Have you found more men or women are affected by this ad, or is it equally beloved across genders?
Don Jeanes: I would have to say I have gotten a lot of women's attention from the ad. I have attracted the attention of a lot of horse lovers. Especially women who are horse lovers. That's been pretty eye-opening and very nice.
PS: Why do think men and horses are such a potent force when it comes to attracting women?
DJ: It's the test of time: a man on his horse and that old-fashioned cowboy. With a cowboy and knights, it's the symbol of chivalry. It really does the trick. And a lot of people were telling me it reminded them of War Horse.
PS: Are horses even better wingmen than cute puppies?
DJ: Definitely! Don't get me wrong; I think cute puppies are awesome. But when it comes to having your own horse . . . "Hey, do you want to go for a horse ride?" I think that would win every time.
PS: Have you ever had a strong connection with an animal in your own life?
DJ: Absolutely. We had a bull named Thomas. I was raised on a ranch in Texas, and my dad would put us on top of that bull, and we could ride it around. I remember being pretty hurt when Thomas died. And then there was a horse named Doc. He had a little white star on his nose. My dad was a lifelong cattle rancher, and that was his horse. It's something about that, a horse that knows everything. When you go to open up the fence, it'll stand beside it, and right when you get your hand on the latch, it will walk away. It's pretty amazing. We did have a schnauzer when I was a little kid, and that schnauzer passed away too early. And that was a hard time in my life. I felt like the Bridge to Tarabithia.
PS: Is Budweiser making a sequel?
Super Bowl 2013 attracted plenty of stars to New Orleans, and even if they didn't make it to NOLA, celebrities took part in festivities around the country. The VIP bashes, house parties, and other events are all leading up to the big game between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers and the coach-off between brothers Jim and John Harbaugh.
Channing Tatum partied with Ashley Greene at his bar, Saints & Sinners, while Sofia Vergara and Stacy Keibler linked up at the Audi party at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art. Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, Josh Hutcherson, and more got competitive during the celebrity beach bowl and Justin Timberlake was joined by Jay-Z on stage for a live performance at DIRECTV's Super Saturday Night party in New Orleans.

I know the Super Bowl is all about football, but truth be told, watching the ads during the big game is half the fun. With such gigantic viewership, companies pull out all the stops to wow audiences, and this year was no exception. The 2013 big game spots featured Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen, and Megan Fox hawking cell phones, Amy Poehler visiting Best Buy, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson drinking milk, and much more. There were even some tear-jerkers thrown in there for good measure — thanks for making me cry, Ram Trucks. Check out all the ads right here.
